3. Milwaukee Bucks – 31-35 (2011-12)
With the addition of Monta Ellis, the Milwaukee Bucks might have one of the most explosive backcourts in the league. The dynamic of Ellis and Brandon Jennings is interesting since teams will have to focus their defensive strategies stopping one or the other. Both are deadly off the dribble and are capable of dropping 3s right in your face.
The Bucks said goodbye to Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson but welcomed Samuel Dalembert as their new big man. They don’t see any scoring from Dalembert as most of the shots will come from the outside.
Draft picks Doron Lamb and John Henson should see playing time right away as the Bucks’ season will be dominated by Brandon Jennings trade rumors. Not one to shy away from speaking his mind, it’ll be interesting to see how Jennings approaches this season as a desired free agent.
